    " I thought it was a really solid book. I didn't expect the ending. I'm a huge fan of the series, and I thought this was a great addition! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 2/15/2014

    " Another intriguing Rizzoli &Isles mystery. I was totally surprised by the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracey | 1/30/2014

    " Like all of Tess Gerritsen's mysteries, plenty of excitement and suspense. Jane Rizzoli and Moira Isles are great characters (the TV show does not do them justice at all). Two years earlier, three unrelated children lost their families in separate murders; now they again are the only survivors when someone targeted their foster parents and guardians. While searching for a link between the three children and their families, Rizzoli finds that she also is now a target. "

    " In Boston, a teenage boy named Teddy Clock is the only survivor when his foster family is murdered in their home. Detective Jane Rizzoli is called to the site. As she delves into Teddy's background, she discovers that he was also the only one left alive two years ago when his family's yacht blew up in St. Thomas. Teddy is not suspected in the crimes, but it gets Jane wondering about Teddy's past. With medical examiner Maura Isles' help, Jane discovers two other kids, Claire Ward and Will Yablonski who have backgrounds similar to Teddy's. Claire and Will live at a school called Evensong, secure and isolated, in Maine. Interspersed throughout the book are scenes set in Italy about a character named Icarus, who an anonymous narrator is trying to capture. What is the connection between Icarus and the teens and how will Jane and Maura keep the kids safe since it seems someone might be after them? "

    " This was another awesome book by Ms Gerritsen. She never misses a step, and NEVER disappoints! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 1/8/2014

    " Good, page-turner, but a little too convoluted (as my mother would say) for my taste. Instead of saying "wow" at the ending, I was more like, "seriously?" and "that's just ridiculous". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Grossman | 12/30/2013

    " definitely a page turner..disturbing, yet the ending was unexpected! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura de Leon | 12/6/2013

    " Stretched credibility beyond all recognition, but held together well, and I enjoyed it in spite of the unlikelihood of many elements of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison Willis | 12/3/2013

    " Not her best. I thought it lacked something and a bit predictable. I didn't like the 'sinister school' premise, it was like a little jaunt into the horror jenre! It has however made me want to reread her last two books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jill | 11/20/2013

    " This book was reallly boring for me and it was little on the bizzare side. I mean it had some elements where it just didn't need to be there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti Tindal | 11/3/2013

    " Classic Rizzoli/Isles. I loved the twists and turns of this story and the location. Although I normally prefer the setting to be Boston I loved this descriptive "castle". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxanne | 10/22/2013

    " Really liked it! Love the suspense & special twists and turns! "

    " Not as good as the other Rizzoli & Isles "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Mcgee | 6/24/2013

    " I was really looking forward to this book, but must say I was disappointed. I love the Rizzoli & Isles books. However, this was one of my least favorites. I had a hard time getting into the book. Hoping the next one is much better! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 6/4/2013

    " It was okay, but probably my least favorite of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MG2112 | 5/31/2013

    " I love her books. I like the chemistry of Jane and Maura. In this one, we have Maura visiting her charge Julian up at his new school Evensong. It turns out that Evensong is not eqall it seems. Neither are three children that lost their families not once, but twice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crista | 5/21/2013

    " I love all the books in this series, but this one really grabbed me and I didn't want to put it down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane Heath | 3/17/2013

    " could almost give this a 5th star. the return of The Mephisto Club,the school in Maine and Anthony Sansone. a surprise twist ending and the possible change of characters "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia | 3/13/2013

    " As always, the Rizzoli & Isles series has the usual heart pounding suspense. This one involves Maura and the young man she helped save. Hard to put down and a good who done it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesley | 2/14/2013

    " Great book, kept me guessing to the end. Can't wait for the next one in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maryellen Woodside | 12/25/2012

    " I usually like Gerritsen's Rizzoli & Isles books. For some reason, this one was the exception. If I had been reading it, rather than listening, I probably would not have bother to finish it. Hopefully, the next one will be better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ilovebakedgoods (Teresa) | 12/24/2012

    " I thought I had it solved. I was wrong! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lai Mckinney | 10/28/2012

    " 3 children, seemingly different, are sent to a school for children who are "survivors". They've survived the murder of their families. Twice, ooh, you have to read it to understand that. I wish there was more of Isles, but alas, still a great story. Keeps you guessing until the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 10/26/2012

    " Quite a few twists and turns I didn't see coming, but didn't seem to enjoy it as much as past Rizzoli & Isles books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rodrigo Sanesc | 10/18/2012

    " Exciting, thrilling and seductive, the only bad thing is that the plot stays in a category of teenage, They don't enter any deeper into the human mind or the complex relation of the man and he's nature, is just about finding the story behind the killings and that's it. "
